of some members of the obama administration. mcchrystal writes, this is quote, regardless how i judged the story for fairness or accuracy, responsibility was mine. general mcchrystal also suggests in this new book that michael hastings, that free-lance author of the article, may have been unworthy of his trust and transparency and he describes the plane ride back to d.c. on his way to offer his resignation to president obama after 34 years of service, by writing that he didn't call anyone for advice, he just got on the plane and that was that. something else mcchrystal chronicles in his book are the struggles he had with the white house while he was in charge in kabul. there were apparently major disagreement about how many troops should be sent to war, the beginning of the obama administration and mcchrystal rights that military leaders wanted 30,000, and the president approved 17,000 and 4,000 more added, but only after what sounds like, in this book, some very intense back and forth between the two sides about, with obviously different views how to do the insurgency, back to you in

it, she was very, very shrewd about cramming things through, and we believe the barack obama got it partially because she dragged the research. we have reason to believe that he would be advisers read this book and they got the move quickly so imagine there was a feeling in the administration to put health care off until things settle down a little bit. the point man for health care had a tax problem. he was suddenly no one great part of the administration team and a lot of people said its february of the first year let's put this off. some of the people in the room put it off and it never passed. now imagine if they had put it off to the point where bill clinton actually put health care on the congressional hopper that would be the first month of the second year january of 2010 what happens in january of 2010? scott brown wins the special election and health care would never have passed. lesson number one, move fast. there's lots of other lessons. one of our favorites is learn to lose. often you lose a case, but what do you do with your loss? example, harry truman loses health c
